The Winsor School
A leading school for academically promising girls in grades 5-12

Health & Wellness

Winsor’s Health and Wellness Program is carefully woven into the fabric of the whole student experience. We believe that mental, physical, and intellectual health are inextricably linked. Importantly, every Winsor student is known and supported. Beyond learning life skills in health classes, they learn from the start that faculty advisors and class coordinators and deans are there for them. Together, our school nurse, and two experienced counselors are daily resources to students, teachers, and families.
